Fleet Foxes @ Chicago Theatre

Fleet Foxes @ Chicago Theatre

Got lucky and scored tickets months ago to see Fleet Foxes at the Chicago Theatre.  First balcony booth seats with a table and waiter service thanks to an awesome pre-sale deal. Opening band Nap Eyes was OK if nothing else.  Super chill sleepy-time music.  Guess it’s not just a clever name? Fleet Foxes went on around … Read more Fleet Foxes @ Chicago Theatre

Blackhawks vs Predators @ United Center

Lat = 42.0050850 , Long = -87.8875351 — Show at … Read more Wolves vs Admirals @ Allstate Arena

meWithoutYou @ Bottom Lounge

The Chariot @ Bottom Lounge

Final tour ever for the band The Chariot.  Sad because I was just getting into them.  Have to say their stage presence was probably better than any other band I have ever seen.  Moshers were about to get tossed by security (rules and stuff), then the band stopped playing.  Josh Scogin, the lead singer, nicely … Read more The Chariot @ Bottom Lounge

Desaparecidos @ The Metro

The Metro isn’t my favorite venue thanks to it’s cramped quarters but it was definitely worth shoe-horning myself inside to see Desaparecidos.  Crowd was nuts, sound was excellent (not overdone like it usually is).  Couldn’t really move from the same spot in the back but still a good time.  Setlist here. Afterwards we made our … Read more Desaparecidos @ The Metro
